Advice needed - GTX560 TI versus HD6950 - Other suggestions welcome

So I'm in the process of assembling a new PC, seeing as I fear that my old one might explode soon.
I've already selected everything expect the GPU.

The hardware so far:
CPU - I5-2500k
Motherboard - GIGABYTE GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3
RAM - CORSAIR Vengeance
PSU - CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 650W

The biggest problem I'm facing so far is finding a suitable GPU for my setup.
I've been split between the GTX560 TI and the HD6950 (Both the 2GB version) - Simply cant decide what to go with. I'm open for other suggestions than my preffered choices.
Seeing as my budget is limited, the price range is 250$ - 300$. The hardware market prices in Denmark and the US are very different, but I believe I've hit the spot with the current price range. (If anyone should be interested my budget is about 2000DKR. - Pretty hard to compare to a foreign market.)


I will be playing a lot on this system! Mostly games like Battlefield 3, Skyrim (With HD Texture Packs, which is a bit more taxing on the GPU) and ArmA2.

  1. 6950
  2. 560ti Hawk or the 560ti 448 will get you more frames then the 6850, and you'll get Physx (if you care).

    Don't bother with 2 gig, it's useless on those cards.
  3. Doesn't matter. Get 560 Ti if you have a small case.
